TOPIC:  Investigating the White Collar Corporate Psychopath

When you hear the word psychopath, what comes to mind? Chances are that the image you conjure up is that of a serial killer. However, psychopaths come in different shapes and sizes, along with different motives. The major difference between a killer psychopath and white collar crime psychopath is functionality, as there are a number of psychopaths that walk among us within society.

This presentation dispels some of the myths and preconceptions we have of psychopathy. It also serves as an introduction to a field of investigations that you as the private investigator, may have either taken for granted, or never may have thought of considering as a specialized area when it comes to white collar crime. Additionally, you will learn how to distinguish sociopathic and psychopathic behavior; the traits of psychopathy, particularly within an occupational setting; as well as techniques and strategies of interviewing corporate psychopaths, and the challenges one faces in conducting such interviews.

This presentation will provide one (1) Hour of Continuing Education for those that need it.
